Title: Didi Mini Mk3
Post by: Chris S on February 22, 2010, 19:20:52 PM
Hi all,

I was just wondering what people thought of the revised Didi Mini for Dudley Dix Design.

It can be seen here http://dixdesign.com/didiminiMk3.htm (http://dixdesign.com/didiminiMk3.htm).

Looks a bit more up to date. How will it compare to the MINI CP? I suppose it now gives more choice to amatuer builders which is good.

Cheers

All good chances except:

~ Extended cabin roof, forming protected cuddy over front of cockpit

I with my size needs all the space the cockpit gives for sailhandling...

And you spend all that time building it, and then that ugy but easy to build cabintop....
